What an amazing night watching this band. Venue was packed and absolutely electric. What a shame Albert Hall have to spoil things by their outrageous charges for drinks and cloakroom fees. Shocking prices. Nathaniel and his crew were simply outstanding.

From a music perspective this is a superb venue for a gig. It's quirky, atmospheric and intimate. We stood on the ground floor and the view was fine as the stage is quite high. We were at the Albert Hall to see First Aid Kit...More

My tickets (Paul Heaton) were for the balcony and if you didn't have those tickets you couldn't gain access to the balcony.
